There’s small bars and then there’s tiny bars – like Double Double. Being so little just adds to it’s cosiness. The space is designed to be as inviting as your own living room, with many comfy sofas that look well worn in. The bar also “doubles” as a coffee spot during the day – hence the name.
Double Double was stop number two on our “Cocktail and Canapé” tour of Subiaco, hosted by See Subiaco and Food Writer Max Veenhuyzen. It’s found on Hay Street, just a minutes walk from the Regal Theatre.
One of their signature cocktails is the “Subiaco Sling”, made from dark rum, sloe gin, almond and citrus. Somehow along the way I’d got into my head that I wasn’t a dark rum girl. Well, I’ve been totally missing out! While it’s not as famous as the Singapore Sling – it was just as delicious.
We chowed down on some banh mi from “Baguette Me Not” (man I love a pun!). Baguette Me Not is found in the Colonnade shopping mall on Hay Street. This was a real treat as I’d never really had this Vietnamese style sandwich before. Each little roll was brimming with pickles, fresh coriander, chilli and tasty meats too, with a side of spicy sauce.
And why were we eating take away in a bar? Double Double lets you BYO Food. Whatever your fast food of choice, you’re welcome to bring it along to enjoy with a drink at the bar. What a great idea! Next time you’re in Subi, be sure to check out Double Double – day or night!
